I was re viewing the fight and just realised AS dident taped his gloves.

Someone knows any reason for this?



A bit odd!

I thought it was a representative from the athletic commission who tapes the gloves and then signs them to prove that they can not be tampered with?

It works that way in boxing and I'm pretty sure it is the same in MMA.

He knew he wasn't going to fight so he asked to not be taped. He figured tape was not needed for dancing and running.

The Spider is one hell of a runner, in that fourth frame he must have ran two miles. The third frame he ran a lot too but in the fourth and fifth he really covered some ground. :confused:

in all seriousness....

I thought the reason his gloves weren't taped was because the ref couldn't get the tape around his gloves prefight because Anderson was dancing...

sorry...

It's really odd that nobody picked up on this.

You've got to have your gloves tapped because the edging on the velcrow could in fact stop a fight. It might not seem like much but if your struck on the right angle it could cause one nasty cut.

The edging of the glove where the velcrow is, is sharp and reason number one why it's suppose to be tapped.

Yeah something is up there because the Tape is placed on by an official and then signed to show that the gloves have been checked to show they are useable within the guidelines provided and havent been tampered with in any way.

I know this one for a fact :(

Didn't stop the fight but it fucked up my face pretty good for a week or two.

It can be very sharp indeed bro.

That's the main reason behind tapping gloves, other then that it's to distinguish what corner your in.

How did so many people miss this? With the amount of people around it amazes me he got all the way thru 5 rounds and no one did anything.

Anderson "the spider" Silva is mesmerizing to watch, kinda like how that guy walked across water and turned it to wine after-wards.:praise01:
